Accomodations & Transportation
Bungalows can be rented for as little as 100 pesos a night or as much as 400+ pesos per night depending on the accomodations. There are bungalows made from bamboo, palm fronds, coconut wood, pine, concrete and probably a few other materials.
The bungalow above is made from shaved palm fronds. The center of the frond is the primary material covering the walls on the exterior, and is also what surrounds the porch. No matter where you stay, make sure to request a fan. Not only does the airflow help cool you off, it also helps keep any mosquitos away.
For cabana rentals with Hector Ortiz (above) call 954-588-3534 from within Mexico or from outside Mexico dial +52-1-954-588-3534. Don't be surprised if Hector runs off to get you some fresh coconuts right after you meet him.
Other great places to stay include Juana's, El Piojo's, Doña Meche's and many more. Doña Meche has some nice two story places with attached bathrooms (rare in Chacahua) right next to the lagoon with great ocean views.
Chacahua is full of small bungalows for rent like these. Since communications into and out of Chacahua are severely limited, virtually all are available on a first-come, first-served basis. But if you want to go during the high season, make the effort to make a reservation!
